CIP is committed to be a diverse and inclusive organization and believes the planning profession must be genuinely representative of the society in which it works. CIP strives to reflect its membership and that of the Canadian population, and strongly encourages nominations from those who will contribute to the diversity of our leadership. CIP is a proud signatory of the Government of Canada’s 50-30 Challenge[i] and offers equal volunteer opportunities to all qualified individuals.

Electronic voting for the Directors to appear on the 2024/2027 Board of Directors slate will take place before the next annual general meeting (AGM) of CIP members. These results, representing the will of the membership, must be officially ratified at the CIP AGM on May 31, 2023.

[i] The 50 – 30 Challenge asks that organizations aspire to two goals:

  • Gender parity (“50%”) on Canadian board(s) and senior management; and
  • Significant representation (“30%”) on Canadian board(s) and senior management of other under-represented groups, including racialized persons, people living with disabilities (including invisible and episodic disabilities) and members of the LGBTQ2 community. The program and participants recognize that First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples as founding peoples of Canada are under-represented in positions of economic influence and leadership.
